25th- 26th May 2017

Tonight, Year 3 had a really special evening as we had a sleepover in school. We went home and came back to school at 6pm dressed for an evening of fun. First we set up our beds in the different classrooms, boys in 2 classrooms and girls in 2 classrooms. It was a lovely sunny evening, so we spent all evening until about 8:30pm outside on the field playing games and having fun. After that, we came back inside and had a biscuit and a drink. Then we went upstairs to get ready for bed. We spent the night sleeping in our classrooms which was great fun but a little strange. In the morning, we got up and had our breakfast in the school hall. We then got dressed in our school uniforms and went outside to play until the rest of the school arrived. It was great fun but we were a little tired by the end of the day on Friday. Luckily, it was the start of the school holidays.
